Celebrated singer-songwriter Garrison Starr is set to take the stage at the iconic Ryman Auditorium on October 11, 2024, where she will open for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. Starr joins Isbell for one night of his highly anticipated eight-night residency, adding another highlight to her illustrious career.

Starr’s major-label debut, 18 Over Me, has been captivating audiences with her powerful voice and poignant songwriting since the early 90s. The anniversary tour, which took place in 2022, was met with acclaim as Starr performed hits from her extensive catalog along with fan favorites and deep cuts from her early career.

A Mississippi-born, Los Angeles-based musician, Starr has carved a unique space in the Americana and folk-rock scenes. Over the years, she has earned a Grammy nomination for producing Margaret Cho’s album American Myth, and her music has been featured on popular TV shows like Grey's Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars.​ Starr's career highlights also include performances at Lilith Fair and tours with renowned artists such as Patty Griffin, Melissa Etheridge, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

In addition to her tour, Starr is gearing up to release her new record, Gospel Truth, in early 2025. The new album promises to showcase her knack for weaving rich, emotional narratives through song — a skill that has endeared her to fans around the world.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Jason Isbell at the Ryman,” said Starr. “The Ryman is such a historic venue, and to perform there during Jason’s residency is an honor. I’m excited to share this moment with my fans and to introduce my music to Jason’s incredible audience.”

The Ryman Auditorium, often referred to as the "Mother Church of Country Music," is a fitting stage for Starr's soulful performances. The residency, featuring a diverse lineup of opening acts, further cements Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's commitment to showcasing talented artists across genres​​.
